Flipping the Chicken: Different Festive Menus to Give Your Christmas a Refreshing Spin

Fed up with turkey? For a refreshing spin on the traditional Christmas spread, here are five novel alternatives you don’t need to travel the world to enjoy.


In Cornerstone’s four-course Christmas menu, a poached half yellow chicken replaces the conventional festive fowl as a lighter and more delightful alternative. The menu also comes with oyster mousse and gougère, Japanese egg custard with Oscietra caviar, beetroot salad and eggplant katsu, rounding off the meal with a spiced chocolate cake.

Forbidden Duck

For a novel twist, why not substitute the turkey with a duck or goose? Head to Demon Chef Alvin Leung’s Forbidden Duck, whose famed Peking fowl is glazed with a secret mixture before being hung to dry for 24 hours. The duck is then roasted for 45 minutes, starting on a low heat that gradually increases, which results in a perfect combination of flavour and texture.


After a three-year hiatus, Nobu has returned at the newly opened Regent Hong Kong. In this Japanese restaurant with a Peruvian twist, you’ll enjoy an eight-course Christmas dinner that includes its signature sashimi selection, Chilean sea bass with dashi ponzu and grilled wagyu striploin – and all against the dazzling backdrop of Victoria Harbour.


If it must be turkey, then why not try it at Rosewood Hong Kong’s one-Michelin-star Chaat? Here, the team has prepared a Christmas Eve dinner menu that includes a fragrant Awadhi turkey korma along with other dishes such as Parsi prawn pav, tandoori wagyu beef cheek and black truffle biryani.
